Glenn Frey -- Eagles Guitarist Dead At 67 | TMZ.com

What's with all the celebrity deaths lately? Here is some early Eagles from 1972. Glenn Frey wrote "Take It Easy," "Tequila Sunrise," "Lyin' Eyes," and "Heartache Tonight," and co-wrote "Hotel California" and "Desperado" with Don Henley. Take it easy, Mr. Frey.

    And there's #3.

    Here's to a very uneventful remaining 2016.

    RIP Glenn.

    Here's the official note from the Eagles:

    It is with the heaviest of hearts that we announce the passing of our comrade, Eagles founder, Glenn Frey, in New York City on Monday, January 18th, 2016.

    Glenn fought a courageous battle for the past several weeks but, sadly, succumbed to complications from Rheumatoid Arthritis, Acute Ulcerative Colitis and Pneumonia.

    The Frey family would like to thank everyone who joined Glenn to fight this fight and hoped and prayed for his recovery.

    Words can neither describe our sorrow, nor our love and respect for all that he has given to us, his family, the music community & millions of fans worldwide.

    “It’s Your World Now”

    Written by Glenn Frey and Jack Tempchin

    From the Eagles’ Long Road Out of Eden album

    A perfect day, the sun is sinkin’ low
    As evening falls, the gentle breezes blow
    The time we shared went by so fast
    Just like a dream, we knew it couldn’t last
    But I’d do it all again
    If I could, somehow
    But I must be leavin’ soon
    It’s your world now
    It’s your world now
    My race is run
    I’m moving on
    Like the setting sun
    No sad goodbyes
    No tears allowed
    You’ll be alright
    It’s your world now
    Even when we are apart
    You’ll always be in my heart
    When dark clouds appear in the sky
    Remember true love never dies
    But first a kiss, one glass of wine
    Just one more dance while there’s still time
    My one last wish: someday, you’ll see
    How hard I tried and how much you meant to me
    It’s your world now
    Use well your time
    Be part of something good
    Leave something good behind
    The curtain falls
    I take my bow
    That’s how it’s meant to be
    It’s your world now
    It’s your world now
    It’s your world now

      Although I was Not the hugest Eagles fan, they wrote some unbelievable music.

      And Frey was a big part of that. Just a rock icon if there ever was one.

      So sad as I didn't know anything about this

        I think we have our third major artist within a week.

        I was not into the country rock style sound but he co-wrote a lot of quality songs.

    WOW - another death? Too many too quick. This is more sad news and another death that should have been a decade or more in coming.

    RIP Glenn - you were awesome!

      Unfortunately, rockers in this age group, most of whom were not known for clean living, will be dropping like flies over the next few years.

        Yes Frank, there seems to be clear evidence of that. (unless of course your Kieth Richards) Overdoing the drugs and drink early on seems to be catching up with them even though they may have been clean for years.

        How are you managing to buck the trend?

          1. Indomitable will.

          2. Indefatigable spirit.

          3. Good genes.

          P.S. A little piss and vinegar in your bloodstream doesn't hurt, either. :-)
